Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is one of the best things you can have in your kitchen. Coconut oil is full of saturated fats that actually help with the functioning of our immune system. It also provides antibacterial and antiviral substances.

Coconut oil is great to cook with, and more importantly, it can easily be transferred into your beauty routine.

Coconut/Almond Milk

If you are still drinking whole milk, it's time to do some research. Experts recommend coconut and almond milk because they are organic, and provide great benefits to a healthy diet.

Swap regular milk with almond milk when making shakes, desserts, and dressings. Because of their consistency, both coconut and almond milk are great for thickening a dish.

Almond Butter

Almond butter is an item that is recently getting a lot of attention in the health world. It is a sweet and smooth alternative to regular peanut butter. While it has the same consistency as normal peanut butter, it cuts back on added sugar, fats, and calories.

You can still use almond butter to create desserts, such as cookies, or add a bit to flavor your favorite soups.

Olive Oil

This one is no surprise! Olive oil has always been a go-to for cooking oils. Just like coconut oil, it is a healthier alternative to vegetable oil and can also be transferred into your beauty routine. When shopping for olive oil, make sure you get an organic version so that you get the best benefits.

Lemons 

Fresh squeezed lemons can really add a kick to a variety of dishes. Instead of drenching your salad in thick dressings that are loaded with calories and sodium, a great alternative will be lemon juice. It can add flavor to many more dishes without adding those pounds to your body.

Apple Cider Vinegar

If you need vinegar in your kitchen, apple cider is the way to go. This is the healthiest type of vinegar because it is loaded with nutrients and has multiple uses. It also aids our digestive system, making foods go down easier without causing a fight! If for some reason this vinegar does not work for you, balsamic vinegar is also a great alternative.
